A look inside the best cake shop in Seattle
Sometimes, we quite literally cannot wait to treat ourselves. And when we get that feeling, we make a beeline to Hot Cakes. This Seattle staple has been providing the city with incredible cakes since 2012.
Originally selling the raw batter at local farmers markets as early as 2008, founder Autumn Martin knew that she had high-quality, organic desserts down to a science. Even still, the most popular item is the Dark Decadence- the original molten cake.
The menu has expanded quite a bit since the early days, though. They now sell cookies, have seasonal items, and have even dipped into milkshakes.
We really like the sound of the seasonal option too- rhubarb bread pudding. Of course, the seasonal stuff is only available for a limited time, so get down there if it piques your interest.
They also sell some take home stuff at their store. From chocolate sauce to apparel, you can let your love of chocolate be known.
The next time that you, or a friend, could use a little treat, know that Hot Cakes awaits you with open arms.
